Public Speaking Develops Confidence

At Gosford Public School the teachers recognise the importance of being able to speak confidently in public. 

All students, from Kindergarten to Year 6 are given the opportunity to enter Public Speaking Competitions at either a school level or at Regional level.

Each year, the students at  Gosford Public School are encouraged to participate in a school based public speaking competition. The students  prepare and present a speech to their year group and winners are chosen to represent their year and present their speech at a whole school assembly. 

Students in Years 3 - 6 are also encouraged to enter the Regional Public speaking Competition. Each student has to prepare a speech choosing a topic from a list they are given. On the Central Coast Competition day the children also have 5 minutes to prepare an impromptu speech from the same set of topics.
